According to Adam Schefter, Cortland Finnegan has agreed to a deal with the St. Louis Rams. The deal is reported as five years and $50 million...exactly the $10 million per year he wanted. This makes him one of the highest paid cornerbacks in the league. No way in hell he was coming back to the Titans with that kind of money. I believe that the Rams overpaid quite a bit for a good, but not great player.
Obviously, this also means that Cortland Finnegan will be reunited with former Titans head coach Jeff Fisher in St. Louis. It will be interesting to see how that works out, in addition to Chuck Cecil being his secondary coach. It became very clear earlier in the offseason that Finnegan wasn't going to come back to Tennessee. As a fan favorite, he has given Titans fans some great memories over the years, but it appears it was just time for him to go. Seeing Finny on the field in different colors sure will be strange.
The Titans are left with Jason McCourty ad Alterraun Verner as their starting cornerbacks. With Tommie Campbell and Chris Hawkins as the only other corners on the roster, I would expect they add a veteran through free agency.
